  • What our students have to say...

    The Microbiology and Molecular Genetics program at UVM is more than just a major, it's a community. The professors emphasize hands on, experiential learning and the opportunity for undergraduate research has allowed me to develop relationships with faculty and graduate students of the department. My MMG lab classes like Recombinant DNA Technology and Cloning stand out as the most interesting, challenging, and rewarding courses of my college career. I'm also grateful for the years of research experience I've accumulated working both in microbiology and the Vermont Cancer Center. The education that MMG department has provided me with has set me on the path of a researcher that I will follow for the rest of my life.
